Mount Sinabung erupts again

JAKARTA (AFP) – Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung erupted again yesterday with a string of blasts that sent plumes of ash two kilometres into the sky, triggering a flight warning and fears of lava flows.

The activity marked at least the eighth time that the rumbling volcano on Sumatra island has erupted in less than a week, although there were no injuries or major damage reported. Authorities issued a warning to planes flying near the volcano which last saw a deadly eruption in 2016.
